Square Mile Dental Centre offers a comprehensive range of dental restoration treatment options, including onlays and inlays.
Inlays and onlays repair teeth that have been damaged usually as a result of a cavity / carie or due to facial trauma or injury. They work in a similar way to, and perform a similar function as a filling or a crown, however, they can be used in situations where either a filling won’t be sufficient, or as a more conservative alternative to a crown.
Unlike fillings which are directly applied to the tooth in question, inlays and onlays are made at a trusted dental laboratory and fitted by us here at Square Mile Dental Centre. This makes the overall treatment more similar to receiving a crown, with two or more appointments needed to complete the treatment. At your first visit, we’ll prepare the tooth being treated which will involve removing any damaged parts or decay and then reshaping it. We’ll then make an impression, which will be used by the experts at our partner laboratory to manufacture your restoration. Once the onlay / inlay is ready, we’ll apply and bond it to the tooth.
